On another forum someone mentioned he saw Donna, his guilt, and what he had done to her... As they really had become true friends and then he had to take all that away from her, and it haunts him... I've read fan stuff saying why didn't he use the chameleon arch to make her a time lady and then she could keep her memories..

I would think the thing he saw in the room would be River.
Which IMO will be a kind of a let down.
I don't think so, it's not as if the Doctor fears death. If he did he would never have left Gallifrey, it was safe there.

I was reading something and it popped into my head as possibly true.
Would it make more sense for this episode, chronologically, to be between The Pandorica and TIA?
For one, it's currently after the Girl who Waited, which shifts character importance back onto the Doctor after immediately doing the opposite in the previous episode.
Also, it leaves them with an apartment and a car, and they have a flat in TIA, and in WoRS they have an actual house, complete with yard and what not.
I just re-watched this episode recently. Though they were only an illusion and a cameo, I did like seeing the Weeping Angels again. I also loved how their musical theme (all that heavy, fast percussion from "The Time of Angels" and other episodes) was reprised when they made their brief appearance.
Hmmm... Another so-so episode for me. Sigh.
That's true, although IMO not enough to save the ep...
has anyone in here read Lungbarrow? The Minotaur looks remarkably similar to the Dr's Tutor who he left behind on Gallifrey when he was exiled from his house. I know many people believe that books aren't canon but Mofat has borrowed from many of the next gen books already with great effect... and the cryptic quote was surely foreshadowing as were the Ood and others as we neared the end of Tennants era.
